  • 40% of Millennials OK with limiting speech offensive to minorities

    Pew Research ^ | 11/20/2015 | Jacob Poushter
    American Millennials are far more likely than older generations to say the government should be able to prevent people from saying offensive statements about minority groups, according to a new analysis of Pew Research Center survey data on free speech and media across the globe. Even though a larger share of Millennials favor allowing offensive speech against minorities, the 40% who oppose it is striking given that only around a quarter of Gen Xers (27%) and Boomers (24%) and roughly one-in-ten Silents (12%) say the government should be able to prevent such speech.

    Christianity is under attack from a thousand different directions all at once, and yet many believers have turned their guns on one another. This war among Christians seems to intensify with each passing year, and believers are often fighting for some of the stupidest reasons you can possibly imagine. Meanwhile, people are leaving our churches in droves and church attendance is way down. This is especially true of younger Americans. According to an incredible new report that was just released by the Pew Research Center, only 27 percent of all Millennials (U.S. adults born since 1990) attend religious services on...

Many people do not understand how all of this works, the cable bundle.

    The average age of first marriage in the United States is 27, but that number may soon quickly rise, as young adults choose to delay marriage and many opt not to marry at all. A recent study by the Urban Institute has predicted that if current trends continue, more than 30 percent of so-called ďMillennialsĒ Ė defined by the studyís authors as young adults born between 1980 and 1990 Ė will still be unmarried at age 40.

    For all the talk of millennials being diverse and open-minded, one would think that few of todayís 20-somethings would believe sex outside of a committed relationship is immoral. And yet. A broad survey by the Public Religion Research Institute finds that many millennials actually have surprisingly conservative views on sex and sexuality, with nearly 40 percent of young people polled saying they believe sex acts between people of the same gender or between teenagers are wrong. According to the study, which polled 2300 Americans between the ages of 18 and 35, 37 percent of participants expressed concerns about the morality...

    Even though there's about 3 million more Americans in the 18-34-age bracket today than there was in pre-recession 2007, there are fewer millennials living independently in 2015. About 42.2 million young adults ran their own households in 2015, down from 42.7 million in 2007. "This may have important consequences for the nation's housing market recovery, as the growing young adult population has not fueled demand for housing units and the furnishings, telecom and cable installations and other ancillary purchases that accompany newly formed households," the report notes.

    A lotís been made over the millennial generation and their religious life. Why they go to church. Why they donít go to church. What they want. What they hate. Iím going to do something different here. Iím not going to cite Barna. Iím not going to quote Rachel Held Evans. Iím not going to link to any articles or blog posts. Iím just going to tell you whatís true for me, and what Iíve seen to be true of others like me. I am one of those rascally millennials, by the way. One of those enigmatic, paradoxical, media-dependent, coffee-drinking young...

    Mama's me-first millennials Thereís no longer any doubt about it, that 30-something son surfing the Ďnet in his underwear in Mamaís basement, only coming out to join the latest protest is a face-mask-wearing, sworn member of the Democratsí Brave New World. That his heroic grandfather sacrificed his life in World War II leaving him the lifestyle of careless ease he leads down in the basement means nothing to Mamaís me-first millennials. The howling of the Fabian wolf lured him over to the other side when he was still chewing bubblegum in Grade School and nothing you sayís ever going to...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: The Washington Post, however, has a story with the headline: "Whole Foods is Learning that Millennials Aren't Who it Thought They Are." I think a lot of people are starting to figure this out. "For years, Whole Foods has thrived by selling pricey food with a promise that it is better for you, better for the planet, and better overall. The mantra has proved so successful that it has helped the high-end supermarket chain to expand from its flagship store in Austin, Texas, to more than 400 locations. But lately, Whole Foods' model hasn't looked quite as...

    Church in a Circle ^ | March 31, 2015 | Kathleen and Kevin-Neil Ward
    When I was young, there was nothing worse for a church than to be ďtraditionalĒ. We stripped back the liturgy, swapped the organ for a drum-kit, and replaced the hymnals with Hillsong. We unceremoniously dumped the icons, architecture and rituals that had fed the church for hundreds of years. We were desperate to present a cool, socially acceptable, ďrelevantĒ package for modern culture. Today, something unexpected is happening. There is a small but distinct movement of young people abandoning the smoke machines, multi-purpose buildings and celebrity pastors of recent church models, and heading back towards traditional worship services, where sacraments...

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | March 28, 2015 | Alexander Marlow
    NASHUA, New Hampshire ó With a speech peppered with pop culture references, Texas Senator Ted Cruz brought a crowd of college students to their feet on three occasions Friday night at the New England Freedom Conference. The first 2016 presidential candidate is the most prominent conservative speaking at the free enterprise-themed weekend hosted by conservative activist organization Young Americaís Foundation. Cruz, who paid homage to Ronald Reagan and Ron Paul for their ability to connect with young audiences, tailored his speech to the youthful crowd. Of the 200+ in attendance at the Radisson Hotel Nashua, most were students. The 44-year-old...

    The University of Tennessee Daily Beacon ^ | March 26, 2015 | Alexandra Chiasson, Social Media Editor
    After Texas senator Ted Cruz announced his intention to run for president on Monday, I was pleased with my Republican friends' response to this news. It's not often that college-aged liberals and conservatives roll their eyes in unison, but that appeared to happen when that boob asked his Liberty University audience to imagine an America where "young people (come) out of school with four, five, six job offers." This was nice, this shared derisive response to Ted Cruz and his astounding senselessness. I like it when we all can agree on things. But then I thought of all the times...

    Ted Cruz? Lizzie is a liberal like me now. But what if one day she embraces the Tea Party, like her grandparents? My parents are Tea Party. Iím a liberal. My husband is to the left of your average communist. Dinners together walk a tightrope of small talk ó none of us wanting to veer too far in either direction, frightened weíll go careening into a political abyss. Our daughter, Lizzie, is always a safe topic. Sheís our Switzerland. But Iím not sure how much longer that will last. Lizzie, at 12, is becoming politically aware. Sheís always been well...

    An older generation complaining that an emerging one will be the death of civilization as we know it is a cliche and constant as the North Star. However, based on some rather troubling data regarding todayís millennials, it could turn out to be true this time. In his first inaugural address as governor of California 47 years ago, Ronald Reagan warned us that ďfreedom is a fragile thing, and is never more than one generation away from extinction.Ē He also reminded us that freedom ďis not ours by inheritance but must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation,...
  • Millennials Are More Racist Than They Think

    Politico ^ | 03/09/2015
    News about race in America these days is almost universally negative. Longstanding wealth, income and employment gaps between whites and people of color are increasing, and tensions between police and minority communities around the country are on the rise. But many claim thereís a glimmer of hope: The next generation of Americans, they say, is ďpost-racialĒómore tolerant, and therefore more capable of easing these race-based inequities. Unfortunately, closer examination of the data suggests that millennials arenít racially tolerant, theyíre racially apathetic: They simply ignore structural racism rather than try to fix it.

    RUSH: Look here. New Republic. Now, the New Republic is under new management. The New Republic is owned by some Silicon Valley tech gazillionaire. My memory is sketchy on this. I don't remember the guy's name. I think he was one of Zuckerberg's founding partners in Facebook. He took his money, they either kicked him out or he left on his own. He's got a gay boyfriend that ran for Congress, lost, spent more money -- it was upstate New York. But, anyway, that's who runs the New Republic. And they got rid of everybody. The old guard is all...
